Congratulations to Ashley!!

Our Ashley, daughter of Diamond and Calvin and owned by Bobbie and Fred Lutz, finished her championship Sunday at the Asheville shows. She is now CH UGRCH UAG1 Timbreblue Windrydr Biker Girl, FCH, SC, RN, CGC!

For Boldthose not familiar with the dog fancy's alphabet soup, here's the translation:
CH = AKC Championship
UGRCH = UKC Grand championship
UAG1 = UKC Agility 1
FCH = AKC Field Champion
SC = Senior Courser
RN = Rally Novice
CGC = Canine Good Citizen

In other words, Ashley has been a busy little girl since she left here! Finishing a whippet's championship these days is much, much more difficult than it used to be -- Bobbie and Fred put an awful lot of time and money into getting those titles, and we are ever grateful.

Ashley was a handful as a puppy. I remember telling her when she was five weeks old, "You're not staying here, honey!" And when Bobbie said she wanted a puppy with a lot of drive, I knew just which one to steer her towards.

We are so proud of our little girl and sincerely appreciate all the Lutzes have done with her!
